Instructions to use pandoc as a custom processor with the Mac App Store version:

  1. From, obtain the portable version of pandoc, such as

  2. Put the 2 binaries in /Applications/Marked

  3. Use /Applications/Marked as the path in Marked 2 settings.

  4. Repeat when Marked 2 is updated, because most probably it will be overwritten.

I will turn this into an automated script later.

    I've found that the best way to do this is this one-liner:

    sudo ln "$(which pandoc)" '/Applications/Marked'  
    This creates a hardlink of the pandoc in your PATH to the sandboxed directory that Marked has access to.
    After every update of Marked 2, just run this one liner again.</code>
